A big resolution many people make each year is to finally organize their home office.

Whether it is a table in the kitchen or an 8 by 10 room all of your own, here are some simple tips.

When you de-clutter the office layout, you ensure that there’s plenty of space to easily move between the office furniture. De-cluttering cleans up the space substantially so that you can easily walk your way to the file cabinet and the adjacent areas.

A desk which is too large or too small doesn’t give good feeling as it will not create a harmony of the office layout. Just imagine for a second, if your office table is too small, than it would create an emptiness of the space. Similarly, if your office table is too big, it wouldn’t leave comfortable walking space around, and the space will appear cluttered.

Regular office utility items such as printer, photocopier, fax machine, etc. should not be placed on your office table. Rather, a separate office space should be allocated for them, so that it is comfortable to use.

The best way to organize your drawer space is to go for labeling, wherein, you label all the project folders and then arrange them in a step file folder so they look smart lying on your desktop. Again, stacking trays are practical ideas for organizing stationery for a tidy office. It will create lot of space, and your office table top will look more than just amazing.

Now the big trick is keeping it looking amazing.  take a picture of your clean workspace and post it prominently so you can refer to it at the end of each workday and bring your space back to amazing each evening.
